Jannica had the chance to attend the Tillis rally at his office on Tuesday at lunch and saw several familiar faces. Even if we don’t change the world with one action, it was great to be with fellow patriots so concerned about healthcare for everyone.

Town Hall sponsored by Indivisible NC Disctrict 9

Mayor Jennifer Roberts
Gregory A. Phipps
And last but not least, every progressive’s best friend:
